Who I am and why I am here

I thought It would be best if I share a one-off post about who I am and why I am here! I’m not particularly eager to give myself labels of any sort: and I find I want to explore many ideas, topics, and I love a sense of freedom against who I am.

So here is what I do and not who I am; I am constantly changing and evolving, so who I may feel I am today may be different to whom I think I am tomorrow. I am constantly doing my best to be the BEST version of myself to share with the world.

Katya

People call me Katya: I am passionate about love, kindness, love, nature, family, pureness, honesty and oneness!

I love to study, research, and write. My favourite topic is Yoga: it may be online yoga, Hatha Yoga, bedtime yoga, back yoga, pregnancy yoga, mediation, Anything that is close and deep to the topic of Yoga I love!

My studies of yoga span out now over 16 years! I know, sixteen years, that feels like a long time, wowsers! That’s a lot of time studying and doing Yoga!

My Yoga journey became religious when I was pregnant! I did Yoga every day of my pregnancy: sometimes twice! I even remember the video and the teacher, Shiva Rea! (thank you, Shiva!) It set me up for a journey in Yoga I would have never expected to happen!

My beautiful boy!

I trained to become a teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga: continuing to train in pregnancy and meditation! BUT me being me (the Virgo seeking more profound understanding in all I do), my training still goes on now reaching 1000+ Hours! I am now embarking on more Yoga training (USA) that I will be excited to share when I finally have reached all the needed teaching hours.

Ok, I haven’t always just done YOGA; I have a deep love for the arts! Especially performance and even from my school years being a thespian is running through my veins.

Before the pandemic hit, I was all set to do a masters MFA in Acting (my degree is in English and creative writing, believe it or not, lol)! I was ready! I wanted to emerge myself deeply in the study and skills of honing my craft as a performer!

I had my accommodation booked, and I could finally fulfil a deep desire to learn the art in detail. Singing and dancing and Shakespeare was calling me, but sadly due to the pandemic, all my plans changed!

You now find me homeschooling getting my son ready for his GCSE’s, and my Yoga is once again my entire focus. How life can flip in a matter of moments is quite something. I love my Yoga, so all is not lost, and I know in the future I may go back and reapply for drama school. I still do bits of acting/modelling when the jobs present themselves: Maybe I will share bits of my acting work as and when I do it.

I have some extremely beautiful and loyal students who join me every week for my online Yoga classes through my membership that I have created! These students I have a deep love for, and I really feel so lucky to have them join me and want to do online Yoga classes with me every week! I love being their yoga instructor! Thank You!

So this is why I am here! Because I simply love Yoga, I love writing, and I love sharing. I want to write about Yoga: all about it, every area of it: to share with you, to support your yoga journey if you have one, to help you start one if you don’t have one! I want to collaborate with others and build and create a community of sharing and caring to make the world a better place.

I currently teach LIVE online Yoga classes:

  • Wenesday: Hatha Vinyasa – 7-8:00pm (Intermediate)
  • Sunday: Hatha Yoga – 11:00-12:00pm (Mixed)

If you are interested in joining my online yoga classes please get in touch! I hope to see you on the mat real soon.

Thank you for reading to the end! I don’t like talking about myself: I feel it’s quite boring, so I cheer you for reaching the end of my waffle!

Thank you for being here and reading! Love Katya
